This is Marcus.

He is a 13-year-old boy.

Meet Marcus!  Marcus is a polite and outgoing young man.  He is talkative and curious, always asking questions about everything.  Because he is energetic, Marcus enjoys playing outside and running around.  His favorite restaurant is Panda Express.  Marcus openly talks about his excitement of having a forever family.  He would like his family to help him maintain his ties to his culture.

Marcus will thrive in a family who can provide him with a lot of individual attention.  He would do best as either the youngest child or the only child in the family.  His family will need to be supportive of Marcus’s emotional needs and encourage him to continue his healing in therapy.

Note: Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) has ceased offering the non-relative Adoption Only program. CYFD does continue to offer the Foster Care program. The Foster Care Program differs in that that the goal of the program is to ultimately reunite the child with their biological parent while the child is in your care for approximately a year. Should you become a Foster Parent it is also a possibility that the children that you foster may become available for adoption.
